Bouchard Finlayson Review
With only 44 acres under vine, Bouchard Finlayson nevertheless thrills critics and wine lovers year after year. Winemaker Peter Finlayson makes good use of the cool sea breeze and unique terroir of the estate to create some fantastic deep-south wines. Try the French-style Galpin Peak Pinot Noir. Finlayson, who has a great voice, maintains that pinot noir "is like opera. When it's great it is pure seduction, almost hedonistic. There is no middle road." You might wish to lay down a few bottles of the limited-release, much-lauded Tête de Cuvée Galpin Peak Pinot Noir, which gives off an exciting whiff of truffles; the 2007 vintage is available. Bouchard is a short distance farther along the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Road past Hamilton Russell Vineyards.
